Shhh Little Girl, Don't Cry

Shhh little girl, don’t cry
Cover your ears and block out the sounds,
Of Mamma’s screams and Papa`‘s shouts.
It’ll be over soon. Go back to sleep.

Dear Jesus, Now I lay me down to sleep….

Shhh little girl, don’t cry
Mamma won’t let him in, as he kicks open your door,
Don’t look at the glass and the blood on the floor.
Just cover your eyes. Try to forget.

I pray the Lord my soul to keep….

Shhh little girl, don’t cry
As his car drives out in the black of night,
Let Mamma sleep in here tonight.
She needs you to hold her. Wipe away her tears.

If I die, before I wake…..

Shhh little girl, don’t cry
It’s time to grow up, tomorrow you’ll be 5,
And Mamma needs you close to keep her alive.
You’re a big girl now. No more crying.

I pray the Lord my soul to take.

Shhh Little Girl, Don't Cry
